Two gunmen opened fire last night outside of a nightclub in Austin, Texas, wounding fourteen people. Most of the wounded were thought to be innocent bystanders. While the two suspects were still on the lam, a local paper declined to provide any descriptions, in order not to “reinforce stereotypes”.

In other news, illegal migrants were hidden in used armchairs and sofas carried by delivery drivers across the English Channel to the UK, unbeknownst to the drivers of the trucks.

Prison Time for a TV Tax Refusenik

The following article concerns a German citizen named Georg Thiel, who is currently languishing in durance vile for the heinous crime of refusing to pay the state broadcasting fee. It’s the equivalent of the “licence fee” for BBC in the UK, except that the latter applies only to citizens who actually own televisions. In Germany you have to pay the broadcasting fee whether you watch television or not.

Mr. Thiel didn’t own a TV or a radio, and made the logical decision not to pay a fee for a service that he didn’t use. The functionaries of the German administrative state viewed Mr. Thiel’s refusal as an act of rebellion, possibly the equivalent of the crime of “domestic insurrection” as it is now understood here in the Country Formerly Known as the United States of America.

I couldn’t find any news articles in English about the case of Georg Thiel, but here’s one in German.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this opinion piece from Politically Incorrect:

Anyone who trusted the Führer still had to go to the gulag

by Wolfgang Prabel

On Thursday there was a disturbing entry in Die Welt: “Those who trust democracy do not need to go to prison.” It was about the GEZ [TV tax*] refuser Georg Thiel, who has been languishing in the dungeon for months because he does not watch television and does not see the need to pay for it.

Incidentally, the author of the entry shot an argumentative buck when he compared the GEZ with a tax in his entry. The broadcast contribution is not a tax, but a contribution in the financial constitutional sense, according to the judgment of the Federal Administrative Court of July 18, 2018. This legal opinion is hair-splitting, but the Welt entry shows the argumentative confusion in Merkel’s power machine.

It is of course completely absurd to link trust in democracy to the consumption of forced television. Democracy is supposedly a twin of freedom. Two examples from the 20th century on the connection between trust and personal freedom:

Many of Stalin’s victims were devout Bolsheviks, but their trust in Papa Stalin was of no use. Even so, they were sent to the gulag to be worked to death and ended up as polar bear food. Even if a Jew had professed his loyalty to the Führer, it wouldn’t have done him any good. Trust in the prevailing ideology does not protect against dungeons, concentration camps and gulags.

Thiel wrote a letter to the only political party that “does something” for him. The AfD published his letter on social media on Thursday. “In the coming plenary we will give the other parliamentary groups the chance to commit to a modern broadcasting that does not take political prisoners,” commented AfD MP Sven W. Tritschler, who recently visited Thiel in prison. “We continue to fight for Georg Thiel and countless other citizens who no longer want to be ripped off by state radio.”

The Ghoul Who Can’t Be Deported

Gary Fouse has translated a Dutch article about a case that is representative of the ongoing Islamization of the Netherlands. The translator includes this introduction:

Paul Cliteur is a distinguished law professor in the Netherlands (Leiden University) and was a defense witness for Geert Wilders when Wilders was on trial for “hate speech”. In this article in the conservative Dagelijkse Standaard, Cliteur writes sarcastically of his country’s tolerance for Islamic terrorists. He addresses a recent controversy over the remarks and activism of Moussa Lghoul (Moussa L.), a.k.a. Abou Ilias, a self-proclaimed jihadist in the Netherlands and all-around angry Arab guy. Cliteur wonders why people like Lghoul cannot be deported.

The translated article:

Paul Cliteur: It is a big mystery why dangerous jihadists are not deported from the Netherlands

The Leiden professor Paul Cliteur writes about his “patience running out” with the soft policy toward terrorists who are dangerous to the state, and who can’t be deported. He goes further: “The Dutch system of justice, our government, the country, is endlessly patient. Completely controlled. Constitutional.”

“The Hague jihadist, Moussa L. (Lghoul, a.k.a. Abou Ilias) was chased away by the police when he wanted to take action in the terror section of the Rotterdam prison because nine years’ imprisonment was demanded against two men for preparing a terrorist attack,” writes Wout Willemsen in the Dagelijkdse Standaard. Moussa had announced that he wanted to die as a martyr and that his “patience was running out,” as De Telegraaf reported. [Geert] Wilders tweeted that he had a solution for the problem: Kick Moussa out of the country.

But naturally, that will not happen. And the big puzzle is why things don’t happen. Not now. Actually, not for more or less twenty years. Part of the answer lies in the quoted statement from De Telegraaf that his “patience is running out”. Whose patience? The patience of the Dutch system of justice? No, because the Dutch justice system, our government, the country, is endlessly patient. Completely controlled. Constitutional. It is about the patience of Moussa. Moussa’s patience is running out. Apparently. Moussa has a message. A message that doesn’t get enough recognition. Now his patience is running out.

Part of the problem is that too many people, especially people in The Hague, think that somewhere, Moussa might be a little bit right. Naturally, he cannot commit terrorist attacks. And when he does, then people say, “naughty naughty”, “wrong”, “unacceptable”. But that he, somewhere, has legitimate claims in order to think the way he thinks — that cannot be ruled out.

Take the statement by Wilders, for example, that Moussa must be deported from the country. That is not particularly fruitful. That doesn’t get us any further. Deport. Isn’t that impossible? Then to which country? Just saying it only makes things worse. And then come the reactions from the news and the discussion tables of the NPO about the words of Wilders. How unhelpful they are. What Moussa says, what he thinks precisely, and why he attaches the consequences to his attacks is not popular.

And that’s why the attacks will remain with us. Just like Wilders.

Roundup of COVID and Vax News

Below are four videos from Italy, Spain, and France covering varying aspects of the Wuhan Coronavirus “pandemic” and its associated “vaccines”.

The first video features Dr. Barbara Balanzoni, who is an Italian anesthetist and surgeon, and also has a law degree. She served as a medical officer in the Italian army with KFOR in Kosovo. There’s an interesting story about her time in the service: back in 2013 she disobeyed orders to save the life of a pregnant cat, and was tried in a military court for gross insubordination. Most of the news about her case is in Italian, but if I understand it correctly, she was eventually acquitted.

In the following video Dr. Balanzoni discusses the case of an 18-year-old girl in Genoa who needed neurosurgery for a blood clot in the brain after receiving the experimental AstraZeneca medical treatment.

Many thanks to HeHa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The second video is a later report on the same 18-year-old girl that Dr. Balanzoni was talking about. The emergency neurosurgery to treat her blood clot was not enough to save the young patient, and she died while in the hospital in Genoa.

Once again, thanks to HeHa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The third video is a report on the “vaccine hesitancy” of French teenagers, who are reluctant to be subjected to any of the experimental mRNA treatments to prevent COVID-19.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The final video features Santiago Abascal, the leader of the anti-immigration party Vox in Spain. Speaking on the floor of Parliament, Mr. Abascal blames China for the COVID-19 epidemic.

I Was Called a ‘Rat’ for not Wearing the Muzzle

I Was Called a ‘Rat’ for not Wearing the Muzzle

Itchy Rashes on my Skin, Possibly from the Shed Spike Protein

A Report from Budapest
by László
June 11, 2021

Dehumanized for a Naked Nose

It’s a nice sunny afternoon today. I am in a supermarket in Budapest, standing at the self-service checkout, with a maskless nose. Everyone else is fully masked up. They caught me. I had been doing the grocery shopping with an uncovered nose for many weeks without any repercussions. But now they caught me, again. The usual power game started. Two shopkeepers and a security guard came by, one after the other, and ordered me to put the mask on my nose.

I did not comply. I applied my usual tactic: I did not argue, but ignored them all and continued putting the purchased goods into my bag, undisturbed. They could not do much against me because I had just finished paying and I was not their customer any more. They did not call the police, either, on a disobedient customer who was about to leave the shopping area of the supermarket. So they lost — this time.

The elderly security guard could not take it. He murmured into his mask, “How many rats are there in this country” as he was walking away. I politely answered him that he should look in the mirror and he would see one.

There has to be a pushback — even if these brainwashed fellow citizens are not the real enemy. Or are they? This seems to be a soft civil war, being fought on many levels.

It is dehumanization to call someone a rat. Dehumanization usually precedes aggressive attacks on innocent victims, because it serves as a pretext. The gates of hell are slowly opening as the Great Fascist Reset advances. Even if most people do not feel it that way yet.

Strange Itchy Rashes — Caused by Vaccine-Shedding?

Red itchy rashes appeared on both of my legs about a week ago, and they have not completely disappeared yet. They somewhat look like bruises on the skin. And I had some nose-bleeds a month ago without any obvious cause. I am unvaccinated. Both symptoms are new to me — I mean, I had never had them before, except when they were caused by apparent incidents such as accidents or insect bites, etc.

The Belgian Government is Shocked — Shocked! — To Discover the Diversion of Aid to the Palestinians

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Belgian Jewish portal Joods Actueel:

Belgium investigates channeling of development money to Palestinian terrorists

June 2, 2021

Minister for Development Cooperation Meryame Kitir confirmed in Parliament that an investigation is underway into Belgian developmental aid that has possibly been channeled to the financing of terrorist activities by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

She answered a question from N-VA Parliament Member Kathleen Depoorter: “This matter is very serious, and cannot be taken lightly. I am happy that the matter is being investigated, but also expect quick answers and appropriate steps by the minister.”

A report accuses seven Palestinian organizations of channeling developmental money from Western European donors, intended for the local people, to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a terrorist organization according to the European Union.

Among the suspected organizations are also found partners of Belgian developmental cooperation such as Health Work Committees (HWC), but also the organization Defense for Children International Palestine (DCIP), which Belgium wanted to give speaking time in the United Nations Security Council.

€3.76 million support improperly used

Minister Kitir confirms that in the past five years the concerned organizations, through their Belgian partners, received up to €3.70 million of which €660,000 through Viva Salud, €1.8 million through Oxfam, and €1.3 million through Broederlijk Delen (Brotherly Sharing). According to the Israelis, our support is improperly used. They reportedly submitted a report to our government, after which the minister opened an investigation.

Payments suspended in Netherlands, Belgian government remains silent

MP Kathleen Depoorter points out that these reports in the Netherlands caused the necessary commotion in the government, and the payments were suspended. “I note that our government, while the allegations are serious, remains much quieter. Nonetheless, I have asked the minister to look into these reports and that she bring her own investigation into the misuse to the Parliament. Everyone is innocent until the opposite is proven, and these Palestinian organizations deserve a fair chance, but we expect appropriate measures if the facts are proven.”

Vlaams Belang: Protect Our Flemish Identity

Last week I reported that four members of the Flemish “right-wing extremist” group Voorpost had been sentenced to six months in prison for carrying a banner that read “Stop Islamization” (“Stop Islamisering”) at a demonstration. I mentioned the fact that Filip Dewinter, the leader of Vlaams Belang, had carried banners on multiple occasions that featured the same slogan, yet he had never been prosecuted.

This week I dug back into the archives and found the photo shown at the top of this post. I took it in October of 2007, at an event in Antwerp sponsored by Vlaams Belang that featured Filip Dewinter and Robert Spencer as speakers. Almost fourteen years later Mr. Dewinter is still a free man, never having served any time in the slammer for displaying that “hateful” sign.

The following video reports on a demonstration in which members of Vlaams Belang protested the verdict and the sentences against the four men from Voorpost. Filip Dewinter can be seen in the video, showing a lot more grey in his hair than he had that night in Antwerp fourteen years ago.

Enricher vs. Enricher Brawl in Valencia

On Monday a Senegalese mob did battle with an Algerian mob on the street in the Spanish city of Valencia. A huge number of police officers arrived to break up the squabble and tend to the wounded.

I don’t know which side to root for. Can’t they both lose?

A brawl with sticks between two groups of Africans leaves six arrested in Orriols

Two of the men arrested needed medical attention for the blows from the sticks

[Photo caption: Three police cars yesterday in the street where the two groups fought]

June 8, 2021

A fight between two groups of Algerians and Senegalese yesterday left six men detained in the Valencia neighborhood of Orriols. Two of the individuals arrested needed medical attention for the blows from the sticks.

The violent acts occurred around 6 pm in San Juan de la Peña [street]. Two neighbors took videos of the brawl with their mobile telephones from balconies.

After receiving notice of the tumultuous brawl with sticks in the middle of the street, several patrols of the National Police and local Valencia police rushed to the scene and detained six of the people involved.

San Juan de la Peña was filled with police vehicles within a few minutes. Three of those detained are Algerians, two are from Senegal, and one was born in Gambia. On the ground, the officers found traces of blood and several sticks used in the fight.

Down with Macrony!

Most people from time to time have fantasies about slapping the [solid waste] out of one or another of their elected political leaders. But how many of us ever get to act out that fantasy?

The video below shows an interview with three anarchists prior to a meet-and-greet event with French President Emmanuel Macron. One of the three — the guy in the green shirt — is the lucky fellow who got to slap Monsieur le Président upside the head a few minutes later. Mr. Macron’s assailant was able to get to the front of the rope line by remaining calm, quiet, and inconspicuous.

A slap in the face, rather than a poke in the snoot, seems a fitting punishment for such a wimpy toy-boy of a president.

Two Minnesota counties have withdrawn their sheriff’s deputies from a U.S. Marshals task force in the wake of the fatal shooting of Winston Boogie Smith Jr. during an attempted arrest by the task force. The issue is that the U.S. Marshals Service would not allow task force participants to use body cameras, so there is no video record of the shooting of Mr. Boogie. The Marshals Service says that it has changed its regulations to allow body cameras, but the changes will take a while to implement.

In other news, French President Emmanuel Macron was slapped in the face by an anarchist during a meet-and-greet event in the provinces.
